Classicalia – Timeless and Modern Day Classics from Nauticalia

Nauticalia is known the world over for their comprehensive collection of nautical gifts, furnishings and accessories. Their tag line says it all and they are truly inspired by Ships & Sea.... Time & Tide... Wind & Weather... Stars & Skies.

 
PRLog - Dec. 20, 2011 - SHEPPERTON-ON-THAMES, U.K. -- Originally started in 1974 as a floating marine antique shop in a converted rubbish barge on the River Thames in Shepperton, they have spent the last 40 years building a huge range of traditional and nautical products.  Maritime heritage is very important to them be it celebrating Nelson's victory at Trafalgar or helping to restore the Cutty Sark.

Lynn Lewis, an ex-BBC television reporter, and his wife Val, also a journalist were the founders.   Now, with Lynn's son-in-law Chris Murdoch at the helm, Nauticalia continues to mix traditional nautical replicas with modern boating accessories

Nauticalia now have 16 shops in some prestigious locations including Covent Garden, Canterbury, Portsmouth and the original birth place of Shepperton.  Over the years their customers have expressed an interest in products beyond the nautical, hence Classicalia was born.   Classicalia incorporates such ‘classics’ as traditional travel accessories, classic car models, working model engines, scale model aircraft and model buses.  

Beautifully styled leather luggage (http://www.nauticalia.com/shop/classicalia/390.html) never dates or goes out of fashion but is simply a classic.  Whether you are planning a weekend break in the city or country a leather holdall is both practical and good looking.  In addition to everyday ladies leather handbags Classicalia also produce a selection of men’s bags including a Poachers Bag and Gamekeepers bag which historically is carried on one shoulder, or across the body, and used to carry heavy loads of fish and game.  This modern take on a classic has been updated to include a suede lining for a touch of luxury, a mobile phone pocket and a zipped passport/wallet compartment.

The history of motor sport has left us with some amazing examples of engineering from true classics by Bugatti, Ferrari and Mercedes to more fun examples of our motoring heritage such as the Volkswagen Camper Van and Austin Mini.    

Classicalia includes a Working Model Engines section which shows us exactly how far technology has progressed when you view this range of beautifully-engineered models which are available ready-built or some as model kits which have been pre-machined for you to assemble yourself.  You will find a gondola powered by the world's smallest steam engine, working models of Stirling's external combustion engines and our incredible lab-spec gyroscope.

To view these classic products and more find the new brand of Classicalia (http://www.nauticalia.com/shop/classicalia.html) on the Nauticalia website.
